The Longbow Archer is the ranged unit of the Late Middle Ages. It is trained in the Longbow Archer Range. It has a range of 6, which is 1 more than the Crossbowman and has a slightly higher attack and defense than the crossbowman. It gains defense against heavy units and an attack bonus when standing on rocks and when attacking heavy units.
The Longbow Archer is best used against Heavy Infantry and the Imperial Guard, if the opponent doesn't have a lot of artillery or fast units. It is weak against fast units and light units, so try and avoid artillery units as they do significant damage to Longbow Archers from far away.Longbow Archers are very commonly used and should be recruited after researching the tech Longbows.
The Attack Range of the Longbow Archer was reduced from 7 to 6 in the 1.0 update of the game.
